  8. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Summary of Chapter One • A demon possessed man is healed. • Jairus’ daughter is seriously ill. • A woman with severe bleeding is healed. • Jairus’ daughter dies but is raised to life.

  9. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Mark 5:1-20 – • Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man

  10. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Mark 5:1-20 – • Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man • Arriving in the Gentile region of the Gerasenes where he immediately encountered a spirit possessed man. • Jesus healed the man but is requested to leave the region by the inhabitants.

  11. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 1They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.

  12. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 1They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. • They went across the lake: • Jesus and his disciples continued their voyage across the Sea of Galilee following the dramatic stilling of the violent storm by Jesus in Mark Chapter Four.

  13. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • The region of the Gerasenes: • The incident occurred near Gerasa, a small town by the sea that is to be distinguished from the larger Gerasa, modern day Jerash.

  14. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. 4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.

  15. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • A man with an impure spirit came, to meet him: • Jesus’ battle with the spiritual realm of Satan is never far from the surface. • It appears that the impure spirit recognised Jesus the moment he got out of the boat to come ashore.

  16. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • One or two men? • When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way (Matthew 8:28).

  17. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • One or two men? • When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way (Matthew 8:28). • A similar account with healing a blind man or two blind men in Jericho.

  18. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Lived in the tombs: • Not only is this man a social outcast but the spirit forced him to live in to the resting place for dead bodies.

  19. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • He had often been chained hand and foot either because the local people feared his violent nature or they had pity on him, not wanting him to self-harm.

  20. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • He had often been chained hand and foot either because the local people feared his violent nature or they had pity on him, not wanting him to self-harm. • But if people are bound in chains, held fast by cords of affliction, he tells them what they have done — that they have sinned arrogantly (Job 36:8-9).

  21. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • The word came to Jeremiah from the Lord after Nebuzaradan commander of the imperial guard had released him at Ramah. He had found Jeremiah bound in chains among all the captives from Jerusalem and Judah who were being carried into exile to Babylon (Jeremiah 40:1).

  22. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance (Acts 12:6).

  23. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance (Acts 12:6). • The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. Then he asked who he was and what he had done (Acts 21:33).

  24. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling — these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day (Jude 6).

  25. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. (Revelation 20:1-3).

  26. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • He tore the chains apart demonstrates the superhuman strength given to the man by the impure spirit that had inhabited him.

  27. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • He said, “If anyone ties me securely with new ropes that have never been used, I’ll become as weak as any other man.” So Delilah took new ropes and tied him with them. Then, with hidden men in the room, she called to him, “Samson, the Philistines are upon you!” But he snapped the ropes off his arms as if they were threads (Judges 16:11-12).

  28. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • He would cry out and cut himself with stones: • Baal worshippers would self-mutilate as part of their ceremonies, as seen when Elijah laid down a challenge to them.

  29. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or travelling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.” So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. (Continued).

  30. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention. • (1 Kings 18:27-29).

  31. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • This man was in a pitiful state and the people should have had compassion on him. • However, many of them would have feared him, or at least the spirit within him, and probably stayed well away.

  32. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. 7 Heshouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!”

  33. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • When the man ran and fell on his knees before Jesus, it may indicate an involuntary submission of the demons to Jesus’ greater power, or that the man himself longed to be free of the demonic influence.

  34. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Jesus, Son of the Most High God translates the name El Elion, a term used by the Phœnicians and other neighbouring states for the God of Israel, recognising him as being superior to their own gods.

  35. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth (Genesis 14:18-19).

  36. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him (Hebrews 7:1).

  37. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • This acknowledgement that Jesus is the Son ofGod must not be confused with the writings of Paul, who states: Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:3), for there is a clear difference between recognising who Jesus is and accepting him as their personal Lord and Saviour!

  38. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • He shouted at the top of his voice: • Again, if this were the man speaking he would not doubt be shouting from a perspective of great fear. • From the demons, it would be a display to harm the reputation of Jesus as the God of compassion and justice.

  39. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • In God’s name don’t torture me! • Either a plea from the man who only knew such treatment from the spirits. • Or a plea from the spirits who recognised Jesus’ superior power and his intent to destroy evil.

  40. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”

  41. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!” • 9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” • “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”

  42. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • What is your name? • Jesus speaks directly to the demons and not to the man, indicating his ability to interact directly within the spiritual realm. • For some reason he was interested in the name or names of the demons but no other details are requested.

  43. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • My name is Legion: • A legion was the largest unit of the Roman army and at full strength had 6,000 soldiers. • This does not necessarily mean that there were 6,000 demons in the man, only that there were a great many.

  44. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12).

  45. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.

  46. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area. • Not to send them out of the area: • The significance of this territorial fear is not clear from this account. In Luke 8:31, their request is not to be sent into the Abyss, which will be the final destination for Satan and his disciples.

  47. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41).

  48. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment (2 Peter 2:4).

  49. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment (2 Peter 2:4). • He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations any more until the thousand years were ended. • (Revelation 20:3a).

  50. Demonstration of Jesus’ Authority • 11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.
